  • Description

    Description

    After travelling (in India) we are inspired to create a place where we can live in peace and harmony with nature. We both grew up with western standards but that is not the way we like to live our lives. So from the moment we met we decided to create a place where we can live a more simple life based on Ayurveda and traditional livingstyle of southern India. Our goal is to create a place where we can live selfsustainable and zero waste.

    Let’s go back to ancient living with harmony of life and nature, clean mind and healthy life.

    We just start building so you are more than welcome if you have experience with natural building and organic farming or know about Ayurvedic plants. The first step what is gonna happen is to build a house from natural materials like bamboo, clay, mud and wood.
    Work you can think about is making the wooden construction for the house and outside kitchen and make the clay mix to fix walls.
    If you are more interested in gardening/farming you can help with planting seeds, harvesting veggies and fruits and work like watering the plants. It is our goal to live as self sufficient and sustainable as possible so if you have ideas we can discus what is possible and you may have your own project during your stay.
